Posted on 2004-08-23

I have this client in C# that makes use of remoting. The remtoing gets configerd by an external xml file to make ti more dynamic after the program has been compiled.
But now I dont need the program to be dynamic and I want to have everything included in this 1 client.cs file so that I can easily use this code from ASP.NET aswell.

here is the client.cs:

// console app
using System;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Runtime.Remoting;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Activation;

class Client
      static void Main()

            ICalc c = (ICalc)
                  RemotingServices.Connect(typeof(ICalc), ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["calcURL"]);

            Console.WriteLine("c.AppDomainName (Calc) = {0}", c.AppDomainName);

and this is the application configuartion file ( app.config ):

<!-- xml -->
    <add key="calcURL" value="http://localhost:999/calcsrv/calc"/>

    <application name="client">
        <channel ref="http" port="0">
            <formatter ref="binary" />
            <formatter ref="binary" />

This should do it:

### C#.NET ###

using System;

class Client
  static void Main()
    System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.BinaryServerFormatterSinkProvider serverProv;
    serverProv = new System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.BinaryServerFormatterSinkProvider();
    serverProv.TypeFilterLevel = System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.TypeFilterLevel.Full;

    System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.BinaryClientFormatterSinkProvider clientProv;
    clientProv = new System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.BinaryClientFormatterSinkProvider();

    System.Collections.IDictionary props = new System.Collections.Hashtable();
    props["port"] = 0;

    System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.IChannel channel;
    channel = new System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Http.HttpChannel(props, clientProv, serverProv);

    ICalc c = (ICalc)System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingServices.Connect(typeof(ICalc), "http://localhost:999/calcsrv/calc");
    Console.WriteLine("c.AppDomainName (Calc) = {0}", c.AppDomainName);
